    I am in the castle.

    I am using my fancy 3d audio headphones.

    I am terrified.

    The sound in this is a stress inducing nightmare achievement.
    My main complaint with the castle segment is that the fun of the RE2R with Mr. X was how you could hear him stomping around, and it really sounded like he was just down the hall or in the next room and you got a good idea of where he was.

    With the Fly Ladies, they're just jump scares that you can't know their location, and as far as I could tell you couldn't really hear the Lady either, except that the music would freak out.

    You can definitely hear the loud click clack of Lady D's heels as she approaches, even in the next room.

    I found my biggest complaint on normal mode to be how little damage enemies do. They seem to do much less damage than the animations seem to suggest.

    Okay, I've gotten out of the castle, and I'm warming up to the game. I can actually do damage to enemies, I had more room/freedom to ACTUALLY explore the village. And now I'm into the second manor or zone or whatever, and it RULES.

    Can't remember if I posted part 2, but part 3 of Nicole Tompkins playtrough is up:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ql6xyjCBMkI

    She mocapped and voiced Jill Vallentine in REMake 3, and played Elena and one of Lady D's daughters in Village. She does playthroughs for a lot of RE games and brings in the other actors as guest stars. For parts 2 and 3 of this series, she is joined by Lady D's mocap/voice actress.

    Also I was sad to learn that the actor for one of Lady D's other daughters had sadly passed away earlier this year.

    Edit: In this episode, Nicole decides that even though Lady D hates Heisenberg, the daughters really love their "Uncle Heisenberg" and that he's a fun uncle.

    Edit2: The Duke's actor (Aaron LePlante) has both a twitter and a cameo account now, and is willing to break up with your significant other for you or whatever.

    Still got an RE itch after playing 7 and 8, saw that the 3 remake is on sale for 20 bucks so I picked it up.

    Still very early on and I can see why folks don't like this one as much as the other new ones, but it's still pretty decent.

    it's well made, but they cut out a lot of game content and it's subsequently crazy short

    we did get hot carlos and hot jill though

    It's easy to get distracted by how pretty is, but even then they make such a significant error in only the first few minutes by changing Brad's fate that it became quickly apparent they had no idea what they were doing.

    I can see where it being short might bug me at full price (I mean, RE8 was like 10 hours but felt worth every damn penny).

    But at 20 bucks it’s fine.

    yeah at 20 bucks it's absolutely no problem (also it's way less than 10 hours and way less replayable too imo)

    RE3 Remake is a game I like quite a lot but it is absolutely terrible at being a remake of the original RE3.

    They have almost nothing in common. Even Nemesis is WILDLY different after the like half way point. The remake only has 2 areas that are similar to the original and even those are remixed very heavily.

    I feel like having not played the original RE3 worked to my benefit.

    I have no idea what all they cut out or changed, so I just had a lot of fun playing a shorter but still enjoyable RE game.

    Probably! I did enjoy it but it left me wishing for a remake that was as faithful as the RE2 one.

    I didn't notice the floating forks at first and thought that was Jack Baker and was confused.

    Most of the voice/mocap actors for Village got together to livestream a cast party and give away some prizes and goof off.

    While playing on Hardcore for my first playthrough was a terrible decision that turned much of the game into a frustrating slog, it DID give me enough CP to get unlimited ammo for my grenade launcher

    I immediately took it for a spin on Casual, and man, what a blast. This game is a really fun rollercoaster, when I'm not slamming into brick walls every other hour.

    So, about the ending of Village (this has probably already been discussed to death).
    She's definitely grown up talking to Ethan via the hive mind thing, right?

    I wonder how long it's been, i.e. accelerated growth seems likelier than a huge time skip right?

    That was my impression yeah.
    I dont think her growth was accelerated the connections did that to Eveline. I think Rose has the memories of everyone infected by her though and Ethans are particularly strong.

    Question

    Do you have to finish the story to gain CP?

    Like, can I start up a new game plus, get my shotgun kills, then go back and use those CP?

    Once you've beaten the game once and unlocked the shop, all you have to do is complete a challenge and save/auto-save and the CP is yours. So you can sell all but one gun to have enough money to fully upgrade that gun, save in a separate slot and unlock infinite ammo for that gun, then load an old save before you sold all your stuff.

    I had the cast party video running yesterday while multitasking. They seem like a fun group (the actors for the Duke and Lady D frequently talked in their character voices, and the actor for Chris just pretty much sounds like Chris by default). There were some sound issues because any time they got loud the sound would cut out.

    Some highlights include:
    • Mia's actor saying "It wasn't Mia's fault this time! Chris screwed everything up!"
    • Answering various fan questions like which other character they would have liked to have played and so on. Donna Beneviento's actor wanted to be the spoiler monster from House Beneviento. Heisenberg's actor chose Lady D. Several chose Lycans.
    • Some tributes to the actor who played Cassandra since she sadly passed away earlier this year.
    • The actors for Chris, Heisenberg, and Moreau weren't able to be physically present so they were there via video chat. Only Heisenberg's actor was able to do this without technical issues, but he was in England (whereas the party was in California I believe) so it was ridiculously late for him.
    • Heisenberg's Actor (who also played several Lycans) recounts how many times he had to throw Ethan's actor to the floor for all the various animations they recorded.
    • The actor for Chris talked about how when mocapping you can't have anything between the camera and your face...which makes scenes where you have to smoke a cigarette rather challenging. You have to pretend to smoke a cigarette that's at least a foot from your face without breaking character.
    • The Duke wasn't actually mocapped. They had video taped the actor during his audition, and had him mime a few movements because at the time they were planning for him to do mocap later. However, once the final design for Duke came in they realized mocap wouldn't be feasible so they ended up using the video as reference material when animating the Duke instead.
    • A rock-paper-scissors competition cumulating in Lady D vs. Chris while Angie jumps up and down in the background shouting "Fight! Fight! Fight!" (Chris won by using "boulder").
    • Angie's actor reveals that the "Fight! Fight! Fight!" bit that she does in the game was actually an ad-lib she did that they decided to keep. She'd also recently talked about that in one of the RE8 streams that Daniela's actor has been doing.
    • Heisenberg's actor mentioning that he didn't think people would as readily notice that he included a bit of Nic Cage in his performance. There were other elements in there too though.
    • Ethan's actor wasn't there, but he texted a picture of his hands to Angie's actor so she could show it on stream. Mia's actor also had a hand prop she carried around.
    • The cast all said "Gay rights!" together...which clipped the mic, so then they had to whisper it all together.

    I can’t be the only one who wishes you could skip
    Lady Benviento’s

    Part in the game when you play through it a second time?

    It’s awesome, don’t get me wrong, but once you know the whole thing it’s just kind of boring.

    I certainly wish the CP requirement for that part was a bit more generous with the random nature of the encounter
    I got 1min42sec when I guessed it right because I got caught on a corner. The only timed boss one I still need. Does the timer start when you exit the elevator?

    Beneviento is hands down my favorite part of my first play through but yeah I can see where they couldve treated it like the saw section of re7 where if you know a lock combination you can skip most of it

  • LarsLars Registered User regular
    Fortunately the whole segment only takes like ten minutes once you know what to do and you're relatively safe, so it's like a short break from the shooting.

    For the timed boss thing, I just reloaded the checkpoint until she was in the first place I checked all three times.

    Also, apparently people are making fanart of Nicole Thompkins various livestreams, including the recent cast party.
